In this paper a technology which gives directions to people and also localization of the robotic vacuum cleaners inside some spacious buildings is developed. For this purpose, it is confirmed that which pattern has a small error in dealing with the indoor localization with various RFID tag arrangements attached on the ground. This experiment was conducted by using MT92(900MHz range Antenna) and ALR 9900+(Reader). As a result, the square arrangement has the least error, 21.19cm, among other patterns which are diamond, rectangle and regular hexagon. However, it is necessary to consider the number of tags in the unit area, from this point of view the regular hexagon arrangement is the most efficient arrangement among other patterns because it needs only 6 tags in the unit area.
